Hunting, shooting and fishing trips Iceland

Hunting and fishing trips in Iceland: known for shoreline puffin hunting, plentiful wildfowl and great arctic char and brown trout fishing.


Iceland challenges anything you’ve ever seen in nature, it is a true a melting pot of hunting and fishing areas of surreal quality. In land and water alike, Iceland provides a unique experience, leading with being the only country in the world where it is allowed to hunt puffins. These characterful birds are hunted on the coast with blinds, or on the shore off a drifting boat. Bird shooting spreads its leisures to ample rock ptarmigan in the East of Iceland, to Melar where the barley fields and wetlands attract masses of geese.

Further inland, reindeer stalking paints the perfect scenery against a magnanimous backdrop of vast open grasslands. Iceland is home to beautiful almost estranged nature from freezing waterfalls to boiling volcanic waters, streamed by wild and untamed rivers. These rivers are charged with heavy salmon and the stark red-bellied arctic char with catches of up to 15-20 a day. The lakes like craters filled with molten steel are bubbling with life both with char and wild brown trout, the fishing is challenging as they are easily alarmed, but any angler wouldn’t miss casting their bait in Iceland, whether this is for its boundless prime fish species or its mere scenery.

The roaring nordic seas of the North Atlantic house the largest cod and capelin, followed closely by Atlanto-Scandian herring and blue whiting. Anglers and hunters can trek across Iceland’s unequaled beauty for the noble reindeer or the exotic puffin and finish their day with a delicious grilled char caught that very day.
